To All the Members of the Spellman Community,
We wish to let everyone know that we, the Board of Trustees of Cardinal Spellman High School, are wholeheartedly committed to supporting our beloved Spellman Community particularly during this crisis. We are in an unprecedented time dealing with this virus that has truly altered our world.
While the change and disruption is reflected in every aspect of our lives, perhaps most relevant here and now is the change being felt by our students and faculty where every class has abruptly moved to remote learning. We, the Board, are in awe at how quickly and adeptly the faculty, administration and students have transitioned to this uncharted teaching realm—and did so with all that is swirling around them. We, the Board, and all of the Spellman Community, applaud your amazing accomplishments here. You are proving what truly committed educators you are—and you are a true inspiration to us all.
Nelson Mandela once said: “Education is the most powerful weapon that one can use to change the world”. We embrace that thought as we battle against COVID-19. We will make the most of the opportunities brought on by our new learning environment. This unwanted, yet incredible experience will prepare our students for future resilience, adaptability and success.
For the duration of this crisis, Spellman will remain strong and positive. We have a long tradition of academic excellence and Spellman students and faculty, past and present, have a reputation for overcoming any challenge.
Together we will make it through this crisis and be stronger as we go forward.
Thank you all SO MUCH for your hard work and devotion to Cardinal Spellman and its students.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees of Cardinal Spellman High School,
Board of Trustees
